What You'll Get
Since locally crafted microbrews with delicate, complex flavors take years to perfect, and because you're not likely to possess the license required to run a brewery, it's more economical and rewarding to let someone else do it for you. With today's Groupon, $10 gets you $25 worth of locally brewed beers and tasty eats at Triumph Brewing Company. Taste the ethereal spectrum of hoppy goodness with friends, and put gourmet fuel in your tank for all-night conversation and heated surgery competitions.
Triumph Brewing Company takes the art of making and consuming pleasing porters and appetizing ales seriously. Its menu is perfectly honed to the discerning beer lover's palate, full of bar-food favorites and sophisticated flavor profiles to match the distinct personalities of its unique beers. Start off with bar-food staples, such as buffalo wings (with blue cheese and celery; $7) with hoppy Amber Ale ($5), or tempt your taste buds with an heirloom-tomato sandwich (with mozzarella, arugula, and tarragon puree on ciabatta; $10). A smooth and dark Munich Dunkel ($5) is the perfect pairing with mussels and frites served with your choice of broth, including cider ale broth with tarragon and curry-coconut broth with basil ($11). Dig in to a double-cut pork chop (with braised cabbage and mustard caraway reduction; $22) with a spicy pumpkin ale ($5).
Casual yet chic, Triumph's décor is modern and fun with vibrant colors and funky polka dot patterned chairs to curl up in with your dewy brew. Rich and variously textured walls beg to be touched, and cozy nooks foster private conversations with friends. Stop in this month to take advantage of Triumph's special Oktoberfest cuisine and seasonal German brews. Sip on a malty, spicy, and bitter Sticke Altbier ($5) while you tear into bratwurst brotchen (with sauerkraut and house-made mustard; $8) or dine on rinder rouladen (onion stuffed beef roll, bacon wrapped, mustard, pickles, brussels sprouts, and spaetzle; $17).
- Triumph’s lighter beers are quaffable crowd-pleasers — the Honey Wheat is crisp with a thin, cider-like tone, while the Maibock is syrupy and sweet. For the card-carrying beer snob, the Oatmeal Stout might be more appealing: It’s a gorgeously round combination of seven malts and oatmeal, sweet and tart all at once. – Philadelphia City Paper
- Holy Cats!! Delicious food, great drink and FANTASTIC service. – Wilson OneThousand, Urbanspoon
- Frankly, I love a good burger with a good beer, and the Triumph burger, with melted gouda cheese, may be the best burger I've ever eaten. The staff has always been very prompt and friendly, with a good knowledge of the menu and the beer menu. – PhillyBen, Citysearch
Are They Really Into You?
Enjoying a couple of drinks can increase one’s confidence, especially when it comes to dealing with the opposite sex. But sometimes this extra confidence is woefully misplaced, and the smooth flirting we think we are laying down isn’t going as well as we imagine. Next time you’re at the local watering hole and want to know if the person you are flirting with is into you, ask him or her one of the following questions to gauge interest:
- Are you a vessel of pure Force? The one prophesied? Able to defeat the Dark Side and restore balance to our universe?
If she says yes, she is into you. Also, you are at a Star Wars convention, not a bar, and you probably shouldn’t be drinking.
- Have you gotten the test results yet? Please, don’t keep me waiting anymore. Can you tell me anything?
If she says yes, she is a doctor. And considering your condition, you shouldn’t be drinking, though it’s understandable.
- Do I need to move? Am I in danger of being hit by dozens of speeding cars?
If she says yes, you have wandered onto a racecar track. You do need to move, but you may have found the One!
